Reviews

Praise for Scaredy Cat "A plethora of pleasures in these pages."--USA Today "Like the best of British and American crime writing rolled up together and delivered with the kind of punch you don't see coming."--Lee Child "Scaredy Cat is an incredibly satisfying and engaging thriller."--Karin Slaughter "This is not a whodunit in the classic sense, and that makes it all the more intriguing."--Sukey Howard, Bookpage "Mr. Billingham has created a story as frightening as it is riveting. Pushing the English police procedural to another level."--Dallas Morning News "Heady psychological suspense runs through the hip, flawlessly plotted Scaredy Cat. Mark Billingham again creates a contemporary twilight zone that feels all too real."--Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Readers who like a powerful police procedural with strong characters, will want to read this superb tale. This is a winner."--Midwest Book Review "With last year's auspicious thriller debut (Sleepyhead), Billingham has given himself a tough act to follow. But the return of London detective Tom Thorne is most welcome, and this novel is every bit as intense and creepy as the first."--Library Journal "These are frightening and starkly graphic thrillers that you won't easily forget. Grade A."--Rocky Mountain News "One of the best books of the year. Don't miss it."--Toronto Globe and Mail "Billingham confirms his promise, and delivers an assured and shocking thriller."--The Guardian "An incredibly dark, brilliant thriller."--London Evening Standard "Billingham manipulates his readers as relentlessly as the murderer manipulates both his surrogate in crime, and the police."--The Scotsman "Billingham has a chilling talent. Right up there with [England's] dark masters such as Ian Rankin and Val McDermid."--Daily Mirror Praise for Mark Billingham: "Billingham is a world-class crime writer and Tom Thorne is a wonderful creation. Rush to read these books."--Karin Slaughter "Billingham is one of the most consistently entertaining, insightful crime writers working today."--Gillian Flynn "Billingham's books are as compulsively readable as Michael Connelly's."--George Pelecanos "Billingham is a world-class crime writer and Tom Thorne is a wonderful creation.
